Charpoy Bench

Charpoy, which means “four legs”, is a rethink on the Indian daybed. Charpoy has a handmade cotton and silk mattress embellished by precious crafted embroidery. The decoration is a facsimile of a game, similar to drafts, which in India is reminiscent of the time of wars when kingdoms and wives were won as bets. The mattress of Charpoy is a highly valuable item that encapsulates the tradition, craft skills and richness of the hand finishing, contrasting with the underlying wood base with a black lacquer finish produced industrially in Italy.

Base and feet in solid beech with high gloss black lacquer. Support panel in plywood and stress-resistant polyurethane foam. Seat pad in memory form special polyurethane foam. The cushion covers, in tussor silk for the white and black or cotton calico, are a masterpiece of hand embroidery produced in Indian haute couture ateliers.
